Addictive viewing, but I would NEVER participate in it!
25 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The X Factor I do find very addictive, and while it is very entertaining at times, there are things I don't like about it. There have been some talented singers, I especially loved Alexandra Burke and Leona Lewis, but other wannabes in the auditions have been laughable, and there have been others who were fine in auditions, but were dreadful on the live shows. I do like Simon Cowell, though his criticisms can be very hurtful and unfair, reminds me of Jason Gardiner on Dancing on Ice. When the contestants sing, I do like most of the song choices, as long as the arrangement, choreography and singing is good, and their outfits too, and I have mostly liked them. Louis Walsh sometimes gets on my nerves, he heavily criticised Daniel Evans, and compared him to Ricky Gervais in a nightclub or something like that, and that is the sort of thing people would take to heart in a bad way. As I said The X Factor is very addictive, but I do have a nag that applies to other entertainment shows as well. The actual decision to replace Sharon Osborne with Cheryl Cole was okay, though Sharon was very encouraging and friendly, and is missed. But now Strictly Come Dancing have replaced Arlene Phillips with Alesha Dixon, which is ludicrous. Dixon is a beautiful woman, and has a talent for dancing, but I wish that people would stop being so prejudiced, and stop replacing more experienced people with younger ones. Honestly, it has been too long that people keep judging others by their appearances and ages instead of their talents which is actually more important. In conclusion, I like The X Factor, but I would never participate in it. I want to be a singer being 17, but I prefer to start small, instead of rushing what I want to do, and not be subject to negative press. Speaking of that, the X Factor is very manipulative, thanks to all the lies the media put in the papers. 6/10 for entertainment. Bethany Cox
